I began teaching college as an adjunct instructor at DMACC (Urban and Ankeny campuses) with the Fall semester of 2007, and became a full-time faculty member in 2013. I graduated from Iowa State University in 1992 with degrees in Political Science and French (Oui, je parle francais un petit peu). In addition, I received a Masters of Public Administration from Drake University in '98 and a Masters of Business Administration from Drake in '05. I am currently a Ph.D. student at Iowa State University in the School of Education. Before becoming a faculty member at DMACC, I was an Associate Professor of Business Administration at AIB College of Business in Des Moines, IA. Prior to my career as an educator, I was a licensed property / casualty insurance agent for a multinational insurance brokerage firm and also spent five years as a licensed mortgage loan originator.
Beginning in 2013, I became a member of the DMACC faculty. I teach Introduction to Business, Principles of Banking, Introduction to Insurance, Quantitative Methods and the Career Seminar / Internship course.
